Vul. Henerala Chuprynky, 021 – Shevchenko Scientific Society building
A residential single family building-villa (constructed in the 1890’s; co-authored by Julian Zachariewicz and Ivan Levynsky [?]). The building is an example of a Neo-romantic type of single family home which became popular in the 1890’s among the local middle class. The villa was built on a corner plot as a freely standing object surrounded by a garden and flower beds. L-shaped mansion is added by a picturesque six-faceted tower on a corner. The facades formed from non-plastered brick are distinguished by the bright ceramic decor (glazed tiles) and carved details.
